A  D
A  D

[Verse 1]
      A                                      D
Oh my life, my life, my life, it stretches behind me
                  A                              D
And I see all the miss-steps and the poorly-timed kisses.
       A                                      D
And I ache, I ache, I ache when I see all the nothing
                     A                         D
that could have been something that should have been you.

[Chorus]
            F#m            E
But in this forest full of second chances,
     A                  D
your heat-wave pulls me under.
        F#m            E
In this forest full of second chances,
     A                  D
your green-sap draws me upward.
        F#m            E
In this forest full of second chances,
   A               D
my delight is your thunder.
        F#m            E
In this forest full of second chances,
     A          D
this child is recovered, is recovered.

F#m  E  A
F#m  E  D

[Verse 2]
      A                                           D
Oh my bones, my bones, my bones, they're dry as a desert
                      A                               D
And the tomb is still barren. And the ghost still has power.
      A                                            D
And I thirst, I thirst, I thirst as I lick off the pavement
                  A                       D
as if it gives me water, as if it gives me you.

[Chorus]
            F#m            E
But in this forest full of second chances,
     A                  D
your heat-wave pulls me under.
        F#m            E
In this forest full of second chances,
     A                  D
your green-sap draws me upward.
        F#m            E
In this forest full of second chances,
   A               D
my delight is your thunder.
        F#m            E
In this forest full of second chances,
     A          D
this child is recovered, is recovered.

F#m  E  A
